Lakes Region reads Sarah’s Key

A large group came together today for the discussion of  Sarah’s Key at the Bayswater Bookstore.  Tatiana De Rosnay’s story fictionalizes the 1942 deportations of the Jews of Paris.   When journalist Julia Jarmond discovers that  the apartment she plans to move into was acquired by her husbands family when its Jewish occupants were dispossessed, she resolves to find out what happened to the former occupants. The more Julia discovers,  the more she uncovers about the complicity of her fellow Parisians.  Not all in attendance appreciated the two-track story line but the general consensus was that it was  “profoundly moving and morally challenging story”’.
